O’Kneel’s first deliberate foray into the ubiquitous “distorted-and-cut-up-amen-break” genre known as “breakcore”, this album sees her applying it to as many unlikely and inappropriate sources as possible: Radiohead, the Beatles, even Peter Allen. As well as trying to reinvent breakcore as a pop phenomenon, she simultaneously makes her beats filthier and more jarring, creating what she dubbed “shitcore”. Not only does this album cover the entire gamut of her shitcore techniques (a style she never fully manages to shake off on any of her albums to follow), but it contains the dancefloor-shaking pop sensation “No Bananas”, as well as four bonus live tracks from her megadistorted “MONO” recordings of 2004. Interwebmegalink-approved.
Tracks 1-12 by Buttress O’Kneel, August 2006. Mono bonus tracks performed live April 2004.
